Key Details Revealed as Upcoming Made-In-India KTM Electric Scooter Spotted
KTM has begun testing its electric scooter, and spy photos of the test mule have emerged online. This will mark the beginning of the brand’s foray into the e-scooter market.
KTM’s electric scooter has been in the works for a long time, and there have been rumors about its global debut. The latest development is that a test mule of KTM’s electric scooter has been spotted for the first time. Despite the fact that the prototype was spotted in Europe, KTM may consider this e-scooter for the Indian market, and it will most likely make its global debut in 2025.
The spy photos reveal many important details about the e-scooter, which appears to be an early production prototype.
To begin, the styling of the scooter is similar to that of the KTM EMotion Concept, but there are some differences as well.
The test mule was seen in the front with a vertically stacked dual projector headlamp setup that complements the overall maxi-style design.
Aside from that, the test mule has LED indicators, a decent size windscreen, and a bulky front apron at the front end, while sleek body panels on the sides and a rear mono-shock are included.
On the test mule, we can also see an aluminum swingarm, ByBre brake calipers, chunky alloy wheels, and a digital instrument cluster.
In terms of powertrain, the KTM e-scooter will have a floor-mounted battery pack, the exact capacity of which is unknown.
Some speculate that the two-wheeler will come in two flavors: a 4 kW motor option with a top speed of around 45 kmph and a performance-oriented version with an 8 kW motor and a top speed of more than 100 kmph.
The claimed range of the electric scooter will be comparable to that of its competitors, ranging between 100 and 150 kilometers depending on the battery capacity and motor. Although there is a chance that this e-scooter will be released as a Husqvarna product, the test mule’s overall appeal is more in line with the KTM brand. Even the rider wearing KTM gear clears a lot of space.
In addition, there is a possibility that KTM’s electric scooter will be developed in collaboration with Bajaj, and if so, it will be manufactured in India at the company’s Akurdi-based facility.
